Safe Sex and Sexual Education

One of the most prevalent diseases that has hit our society is known as herpes. Most of us have had it one form or the other; whether it’s oral herpes, genital herpes or even shingles – it is an almost inescapable virus that comes in a variety of flavors! While there are a limited number of herpes cure available to us, we are still struggling to find one that will be able to wipe out the spectrum of strains that currently exist. It seems as if we are finding more strains of the virus every year. The general lack of knowledge and education regarding herpes and how it is transmitted is a serious problem that exists within the general public. Most do not even realize that it is possible to transmit oral herpes to the genitals by performing oral sex on a partner while a cold sore is present in the mouth. This has caused many cases of genital herpes.
